Education reporting seminar set for June 24 at Hyatt Place in Champaign

June 7, 2016

Journalists still have time to register for Mid-America Press Institute’s June 24 education reporting seminar, which has been moved from The News-Gazette to the Hyatt Place hotel, 217 N. Neil St., Champaign, Ill.

Sessions on “Engaging a Younger Audience” and “Mining Data,” among others will be offered during the one-day workshop.

Speakers will include Jim Rossow, editor of The News-Gazette; Brant Houston, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Chair in Investigative and Enterprise Reporting at the University of Illinois; Mary Kalantzis, dean of the College of Education at the University of Illinois; and Diane Rado, education watchdog reporter for the Chicago Tribune.

To register, email MPI Executive Director John Ryan at Registration is $25 and includes lunch. The seminar will run roughly from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The seminar was to be held at the News-Gazette’s conference room. However, city storm sewers backed up after a recent storm and flooded the conference room.

The Hyatt Place is offering a special $139 plus tax and $9 for parking rate for the seminar should anyone need to stay over. Reservations must be made by Friday, June 10, however.
